Poetry Friday and a wintery haiku

It’s Poetry Friday! Buffy Silverman and her driftwood “Menorah Man” welcome us at her blog.

Today I’m rushing to share a poem I wrote this summer during my haiku study.  It feels like August was so long ago!

A bitter morning

coffee steams in the reflection

of a predawn window.

Happy Poetry Friday! Happy coffee drinking!

  1. Ah the bitterness of early morning and coffee–hopefully both lead to sunshine. Thanks for sharing this lovely haiku.

  2. It does feel as though August was ages ago, doesn’t it? Your haiku sounds like the beginning of a haiku story… Why is she up so early on this bitter morning?

  3. August? What’s that? Your haiku study served you well! As Tabatha says, the haiku leads the reader to imagine more. Happy holidays to you and yours!

  4. I am usually up before the sun. “Coffee steams in the reflection.” The image I see. Coffee is a must for waking early.

  5. We had a bitter morning today — wind blasting the snow sideways from the north. I’m more of a tea girl, but I did enjoy the steaming cuppa this morning!
